Haydn The Forgotten Master
When compared to the later Mozart, and followed by Beethoven at the turn of the 18th Century, Haydn's keyboard music has been pushed unfairly to the background. But this compilation of his pieces - sonatas, concerti, etc. - displays his music in full grandeur.
You can also hear elements of the early Beethoven sonatas here - yes, he took off from his mentor Haydn, not Mozart, in piano style. Of course, he later surpassed both of them.
